Big Tree Farms unveils golden coconut sugar to compete with refined white sugar: 'This is going to be a truly disruptive sweetener’

The new golden coconut sugar is expected to retail in May for $5.99 per one-pound bag at natural food stores nationwide.

Big Tree Farms has developed a paler, finer ‘golden’ organic Fair trade coconut sugar that can replace refined white sugar in applications where coarser, darker coconut sugars aren’t ideal, says the company, which has been selling coconut sweeteners for a decade and is still generating double digit growth year-on-year as consumers embrace their ‘unrefined’ and low-GI credentials.
